Extra Big Dog Doors – Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the top questions we’re gotten about choosing a pet door for an especially large animal.

Can I install a gigantic doggie door myself, or do I need professional installation for larger dogs?

Most dog doors you can install yourself, even if it’s for a big dog. Our installation instructions cover our various models. For a non-standard door or wall, consider professional installation.

What types of doors or walls are suitable for installing a doggie door for big dogs?

A big dog door can be installed in a wood or metal door, garage door, or interior wall of nearly every type and thickness. Hale gives you different wall unit thickness choices.

Can the same doggie door accommodate both big dogs and smaller pets in the household?

Of course. Choose a pet door size that ensures the comfort of your largest animal and any special considerations they may have. A senior dog may need a bit more room.
